Huckahumor #2

See, I knew there was good reason to make "Huckahumor" a numbered series.

Huckabee came out this week in favor of amending the Constitution to bring it into harmony with his god:
"[Some of my opponents] do not want to change the Constitution, but I believe it's a lot easier to change the constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God, and that's what we need to do is to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards," Huckabee said, referring to the need for a constitutional human life amendment and an amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

Oh wait. Huckabee is serious about this.

And just for good measure, this week he also reaffirmed his support for wives' submission in marriage.

Well, I'm also in favor of wives being submissive in marriage, but only if they're into that sort of thing. j/k I'm not in a relationship, and saying that I'm in a dry spell is like saying the Mojave Desert is experiencing a drought, but I know that a healthy relationship is a partnership, where each brings their strengths and where each is respected.

Hi Mandelbrot (or is it Fred?) -

First, here's wishing you one of those blessed violent downpours that sometime strike the desert!

Second - I'll gladly grant you the point that people should make the kind of relationships that float their boats, and if that's D/s, fine ... but the Huckster wins, I can almost imagine a constitutional amendment against pleasure of *all* flavors.

I'm with you. Frankly, he scares me, and even though I'm a Mormon (even though it's mostly culturally), I'm also not a huge fan of Romney either. It's Fred, at least online, and the joke is that I combined Friedrich Engels' name with a very popular, highly commercialized song to get something that would've made him turn over in his grave.

I'm in the South, not the Mojave, but we could also use rain. We finished last year with just enough rain to not qualify as a drought, but I don't want the real cure to that: a hurricane. *shudders*

Sungold said...

Fred, I was actually referring to your relationship drought ... I guess I crowded too many metaphors into too small a space! But I'll wish you rain both literally and figuratively, then. I've heard about Atlanta's looming water crisis, and it sounds alarming.

Mandelbrot's Chaos said...

D'oh! I tortured that poor metaphor to death, and then I lost the thread. :)

I agree about Atlanta, and north Alabama and Tennessee. I've heard some towns are already having to import water just to bathe and cook. Scary.
